Information beforehand

Original mod by Pandamoneus (requested permission to modify/update but no response so far. If he requests it i will remove it)

This mod is part of my attempt on updating the old Farlands modpack that was made for 0.13-0.14. Some mods need to be updated manually and so i took it upon myself to do this.
I will contact original mod authors to request permission to update the mods. Once permission is granted or i had no response within a month i will push the mods to the portal(mods can be taken down if requested by original author)

Early trains

This mod allows for earlier access to trains for both player transport aswell as moving cargo. This is achieved by making use of the bob library functions to remove science packs aswell as removing some prerequisites.

Currently available

  • Railway
  • Signals
  • Cargo Wagon
  • Early access to FARL Train (if Farl is enabled)
  • Early access to shuttle train (if shuttle tech is enabled)


  • Fluid wagon

To be added

  • mod settings so user can adjust science requirements for each of the affected techs
